A great brother and brother-in-law, really more like a brother. Will be sorely missed in our lives. We echo Kevin's comments. And, we will miss the honey bears on our trips to Fla.

Jr. and Katherine, So sorry for your lose. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Some of Dads favorite memories are of the the trips west with your Dad and Mom. He still talks about them and wants to go again. Arlie Jr. and Viv Collier Pound Va.

Uncle Monroe was a quiet man with a great sense of humor and more common sense than anyone else I know. Every time I saw him or talked to him I learned something new.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
